Who we are

EDMO and the national or multinational hubs form a network aimed at countering disinformation and analysing its impact on society and democracy both at national and European level.

Through the Connecting Europe Facility, the European Commission allocated more than 11 million euros to finance the first eight hubs which were officially announced in May 2021.

Since then, the hubs are building a multidisciplinary community of academic researchers, fact-checkers, media practitioners, and other relevant stakeholders. This community engages in detecting and exposing disinformation campaigns including by developing tools and methods to counter online disinformation, organises media literacy activities, and analyses digital media ecosystems across 15 countries in the EU and the EEA. The hubs are independent from any national or EU public authority.
